A cpl of days ago I saw a small pimple like bump on my breast. I popped it & pus came out. It's now red, swollen & larger. Could it be breast cancer?

It is worth a visit but I wouldn't freak about cancer as my first thoght ...Read more

Cellulitis/ abscess: You are describing an abscess or skin infection which may have arisen from an oil gland on her skin or it may actually be mastitis, or infection in the mammary gland of the breast. Start with some warm compresses. I would anticipate the doctor will give antibiotics and may recommend incising and draining it if it is large. ...Read more
